The Viceroy's Bistro e has raised the bar on Brickell happy hours by lowering the prices on signature sake cocktails and sushi rolls. The deal is called the $5 After 5 p.m. Sushi and Sake Happy Hour. Sushi Chef Tua, who was previously with Sushi Maki, has been rolling creative and tasty Japanese chow at Bistro e for three months now. His presentation is some of the most visually artistic in Miami.

While Tua prepared two rolls, our bartender made suggestions and spoke charismatically about the drinks, including the Eos raspberry cocktail, with four fresh raspberries, raspberry vodka, sake, and club soda, and Japanese lychee with lemonade and sake.

Any cocktail connoisseur should know that anytime the bartender has to go to the kitchen for ingredients, it means he's creating an extraordinary beverage.

The Eos cocktails, regularly priced at $14, are also discounted to $5. The Viceroy Old Fashioned includes Zacappa 23-year rum in place of bourbon whiskey -- and orange-flavored Angostura bitters substituting for traditional bitters. It is a refreshingly new twist on the antiquated cocktail. 

The Honeydew & Cucumber Luxe combines freshly extracted juices with lemon; it's then shaken with Martin Millers Dry Gin, house-made clover honey syrup, and finished with a dash of Regan's No. 6 orange bitters. The whole thing is garnished with a cucumber slice.

 I also sampled two rolls: salmon with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and sweet chili sauce --  and the spicy tuna with kaiware, yamagobo, albacore, and ponzu sauce. The sushi is rich and flavorful, and comes in generous-size rolls. Sushi is available at Bistro e beginning at 11 a.m., Monday to Friday.
